Good Hotel Guide Review
In ‘an attractive, central setting’, with ‘a commanding vista’ over the city, Tim Hart’s hotel is ‘a clear choice for business travellers and parents visiting offspring at university,’ say Guide inspectors this year. Past ‘a personable greeting’, public spaces are contemporary and uncluttered. Light bites are served all day in the bar; ‘a well-tended balcony garden is set high on the hillside’. (Some bedrooms have direct access to the secluded garden – ‘a pleasing spot’ for an alfresco breakfast.) ‘Our room was smallish, and some of the furnishings looked their age. But there was a large bed, and the bathroom, though snug, was clean.’ Chef Daniel Burridge’s daily-changing modern menu is served in the ‘well-decorated’ restaurant, next door. ‘We enjoyed plump, meaty pheasant breast and lentils; a dish of smoked haddock and poached egg was well presented. Bread, from the owner’s Hambleton Bakery, remains first class. The cheese platter could have been more generous, however.’ In the morning, ‘good’ hot and cold options at breakfast include ‘pleasantly sloppy scrambled eggs’. Hambleton Hall, Hambleton (see entry), is under the same ownership.
